Recipe

French cooks prefer delicate flageolet beans for this rustic dish, but any small white bean will do.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 15 Mins
Cooking time: 1hr 30 Mins

Ingredients

  • 3 lb (1.35kg) leg of lamb, or shanks
  • 2–3 sprigs rosemary
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Two 15 oz (440g) cans flageolet or Great Northern beans, drained
  • 4 plum tomatoes, cut in halves lengthwise
  • 4 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 2/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). With a small, sharp knife, make several deep cuts into the flesh of the lamb. Strip the leaves from 1 rosemary sprig, and push a few rosemary leaves into each cut. Place the lamb in a roasting pan, with the oil, and season with salt and pepper.

2. Bake for 1 hour. Combine the beans, tomatoes, garlic, and remaining rosemary. Remove the lamb from the oven and spoon the bean mixture around it. Mix the wine and tomato paste together and pour over the beans.

3. Cover the pan with aluminum foil, then continue baking, stirring the beans after 15 minutes, for about 30 minutes, until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the lamb reads 130°F. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.

Notes

Prepare ahead: The lamb can be prepared through step 1 and refrigerated up to 1 day ahead.
